The Marriage of Figaro

City of music, city of dreams. As the former heart of the Habsburg Empire, the Austrian capital is simply awash with imperial history, with plenty of grand architecture including gorgeous Baroque palaces.

Vienna’s historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as is the opulent Schönbrunn Palace, and the city’s musical heritage is unmatched –Mozart lived and worked here, as did a staggering number of other famous composers. Don’t miss a walk along the Ringstrasse, lined with elegant late19th-century buildings, a stroll along on the banks of the Danube, or the opportunity to wile away some time in Vienna’s celebrated coffee houses.
